What To Do On A Summer Day

by Phyllis H. Beebe

Lounge in a hammock
Drink lemonade
Loll in a lake
Read a book in the shade.

Visit with Gramma
Play marbles with Dave
Watch Mama make cookies
Count whatever you save.

Hop on your bike
And head into town
Eat an ice cream cone
Wander around.

Talk with your friends
Five and Dime shop
Take in a movie
(When will this stop?)

There's so much to do
On a hot summer day
When you are a child
With time just to play.
